shrinks the deficit faster than a growing economy that creates good jobs. we need to make america a magnet for good jobs, equipping our people with the skills required to fill the jobs. making sure their hard work leads to a decent living. those are the things we should be pushing ourselves to think about and work on every single day. that's what the american people expect. that's when i'm going to work on every single day to help deliver. so i need everybody who is watching today to understand we've got a few days, congress can do the right thing. we can avert just one more washington-manufactured problem that slows our recovery and bring down our deficits in a balanced, responsible way. that is my goal, that's what would do right by these first responders, these what would do right by america's middle class. that's what i'm going to be working on and fighting for, not just over the next few weeks but over the next few years. thanks very much, everybody. thank you guys for your service.
